"I call that economical: With the ConRads' total mileage performance of roughly 15,000 hours, we save two sets of six tyres each."
Claude Maetz, Aprolis, technical fleet manager at Kronenboug in Obernai
Living it up like God in Alsace
Forklifts from Aprolis, tyres from Continental, beer from Kronenboug: The name stands for both the most popular brand of beer as well as the leading brewery in France.
The Kronenbourg brewery's range of international and specialty beers includes larger beer, pale and amber beers and brown ales as well as NA beer, shandy and cider. With 8.5 milion hectoliters brewed each year, the Alsatians control an impressive 40 percent of the French market.
"The ConRad HT is the most cost-efficient solution, espicailly for heavy vehicles. I have warmly recommended it to my colleagues at Caterpillar.
With an assist from Kronenbourg, Continental have already convinced SMV in Sweden to mount the ConRad HT as original equipment on their vehciles."
Claude Maetz oversees the technical side of things for the brewery's fleet of foklifts. He is in charge of six mechanics and 60 vehicles. A large share of the fleet puts in an average of 4000 hours of service a year.
According to Maetz, the service life of the ConRad HT 12.00R20 is 30 percent longer than for a competing product.
